Multicultural Initiatives for Graduate Student Success

To further that ideal, Multicultural Initiatives for Graduate Student Success (MIGSS) is a Graduate College program that celebrates diversity, promotes civility, encourages inclusion, embraces healthy interdependence, and positively influences the BGSU learning community to discourage discrimination and harassment.

MIGSS recruits students for University graduate programs and then coordinates an array of services designed to see these students through enrollment and graduation. The director of MIGSS, along with Career Services and graduate coordinators, also assists students with career placement. This close relationship continues into graduates’ professional careers. MIGSS alumni are continually networking. They have ongoing opportunities to assist in recruiting new students for the program and often return to campus as guest speakers or to attend special events.

MIGSS is a model of BGSU’s commitment to diversity. The program assists students in the achievement of academic and professional goals. Current graduate students often comment that the personal attention, prompt follow-up, financial aid information and other assistance they receive are among the factors that influenced their decision to choose BGSU. The ongoing services and activities of MIGSS also help students settle more comfortably into University life.
